Giorgio N

Giorgio's 2018

Recommended Posts

A relatively decent output for this 2018, although the number of models started and not completed is still way too high.. Still, for what has been a troublesome year from many aspects, I can't complain about the models I completed. In particular I'm happy to see that my models are improving, let's say that this year I've not achieved much quantity but at least I've had some quality..

 

First is a model that shows little of that quality, the old Matchbox 1/72 Gnat, here finished using decals from the Airfix new mould starter set. The model features Aeroclub seats, a scratchbuilt cockpit and modified intakes.

Then I had a few very unproductive months, when I started several kits but didn't complete one, until I managed to finish this Vampire for the Brits Abroad GB. This is the Special Hobby kit, this time in the Azur box. My model is finished in the livery of the Italian Air Force 4th Stormo. Decals came from various sources, including home printed unit markings and codes.

A jump of a month in 2018 and roughly 15 years in history with an F-104 in Dutch KLu markings. Kit from Revell with some parts from Hasegawa. Main markings are from the Italeri rebox of the Esci kit while most stencils are home printed.

Last but not least, a proper classic to celebrate the RAF 100th anniversary and pay homage to the too often forgotten men who fought in South East Asia during WW2: a Spitfire Mk.VIII of 152 Sqn from the Eduard kit with Kagero decals.

That's it for this year, hopefully the next year will be more productive

A nice collection of models Giorgio, I particularly like the Starfighter, but it was a tough choice between that and the Mk. VIII Spit.

Very neat works,maybe the F104 looks the most attractive in particular

That Vampire/Vixen is lovely. My Grandfather used to work on those during in his National Service- he hated them! Apparently the rain regularly  stripped off the paint.
